I don't understand why someone would want to be a lawn.....I have enough people walking all over me without encouraging it

OH. Sorry. Just realised. I thought they all had to be gardening themed.

Not a quote as such, but the quote of a poem......from 'Carve her name with pride'.

"The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause

For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours
and yours

 

 

 Talking of cracking up - Deborough Kerr, a spoken song on her album 'Send in the Clowns'. Powerful.
